''Experimental Economics Research: Is there an alternative to having huge research budgets?''
( 2007, Vol. 3 No.4 )
 
 
The need to pay subjects to participate in experiments places a major financial burden on experimental economists. In this paper, we conduct dictator games and find that there is no difference in the way student subjects split money and extra-credit points, an encouraging result that suggests that giving course points could be a viable alternative to giving out cash in economic experiments.
 
 
Keywords: dictator games
